Those are cultural differences and not racial differences.

Just look at the cultural differences amongst whites of euro decent in the US. Go to an amish community then go to Manhattan, South Beach etc.

Yeah but I have had way more problems or confrontations by the white trash types. They are on some kind of testosterone trip and always wanna fight. Especially in the midwest. And I am white btw.

Jerry Springer made a whole career out of exploiting that stereotype .

This is true. There are a lot of dumb white trash types who want to fight. I was talking more about getting excited in certain situations and how this ties into every day life. I was not talking about people who just want to fist fight.

If you go to say the Baltic Sea area and then just travel south you will notice huge differences in the way people act. You will also notice that the further south you go the more people love sweet sugary desserts with icing etc spread all over. Maybe this uncontrollable desire for very sweet desserts has something to do with this behavior.

You've obviously never been to a dinner in the upper Midwest-I've never seen so many sugar and butter saturated desserts as I did when I was there. And I'm from the South, btw.

Really? Your login name is 'facts'?

Maybe in Facts 102 they discuss 'culture'

Excitable? That is a very subjective word. Excitable to you? What is the criteria to say who is more excitable?

Why? One word: diversity.

How did you come up with the conclusion that "This is not even noticeable in the USA"? Where have you been in the USA to come up with that conclusion? I have been in about 30 states and from my standpoint I do not agree with you. We also have diversity in the USA. I also had the opportunity to be in about 30 countries, diversity in each one of them also.

One question I have now. What was the intent of asking this question?

You have a great day.

The next post after my first, I wrote what I meant: This is not just in the USA.

It is possible that over eons that people of certain areas of the world ate certain foods, this then altered their body chemistry over time, and this contributed to certain factors of behavior. Of coure climate is a major factor, but food is another contributor as to why certain groups have small differences when compared to others. Yes, some of this is cultural, but much more of it is biological than some people here are capable of handling discussing in this forum.

These things are usually cultural. It might sound dumb but I have always said that if you look at Star Trek you see various cultures, many fictitious, interacting. There's Spock and that "culture of logic", and Warf who had that aggressive, war-like culture.

There are those who say that when taken in cultural perspective, no culture should be taken as better or worse than another. But I can't help but think a Nazi culture would be a genuinely bad culture.
